The best player of Faroe Islands was named Elsa Egholm (RB) and the best among the Bulgarians was Simona Petrova (LB).
Elsa Egholm: The game was difficult, but we have a really well put together, hard working team and I think that is the main reason it was so easy for us to win todays match.
Pancheva Petia, Coach of Bulgaria: We didn’t play well in defence, there were many mistakes in attack. We’ll work harder and try to do better in the next match.
